hold hands and fight.

January 31st, 2006

I stumbled upon the Rosebuds somehow, wasting time and basically avoiding do any work possible. At first glance I had little interest in them. A band that is made up of simply a married couple seemed, well, cliche. Of course, it was a jump to logic, and I gave them a listen and was very surprised.

The song “Hold Hands and Fight” off their new album “Birds Make Good Neighbors” has become one of my favorite songs of the year. Granted, its 2006, but if we were back in the old 2005, I would venture to make this statement as well. The song starts off simple, and just builds into a very intricate piece of work. The drums in the beginning just seems to make everything stand still, and the background vocals just add to its beauty. When the song actually kicks it, you shiver, well, I did. But then again, I’ve been getting too sentimental recently.

Anyway, give it a listen, you might like, you might not. But as one review stated, “if this is the music they write when they are together, I can’t wait until they break up”.
